Home from Vegas

I made it home from Vegas with a few dollars left in my pocket. I only gambled (and lost) $5, but as anyone who has been to Vegas knows - it ain't cheap. We saw a show, ate a lot, drank a lot and spent a lot of time sitting in traffic on Las Vegas Boulevard! I was amazed at the number of people in Vegas. Definitely, "Disneyland" for adults. I had a lot of fun . . . so much fun I didn't have time to document it in pictures. So sorry! It was a great time spent with some great friends. I wouldn't say it was a restful time (except for Friday morning when they called and asked where I was ... it was 9:30am and I wasn't up yet ... whoops!!) But, it was nice to be away from the stresses of home and work for a few days.

My kids were happy to see me, or should I say - they were happy to see the gifts I brought home. The first words out of Eric's mouth were "What did you bring me?" Of course, Jack was just happy to see his mommy.

The nursing saga continues. The new nurse who was supposed to start this coming week decided she didn't want to work our case because she wasn't comfortable working with Jack (at least that is what they are telling me). We are now back to square one with Kristi being our only nurse. May is going to be an extremely busy month with Mary's graduation from 8th grade and all the events that go along with that and with me leaving for New Jersey in a few weeks for my sister's graduation. I REALLY need more than one nurse! This whole nursing thing is so frustrating at times.

That's my lame update. I've got loads of laundry and tons of housecleaning to get done before the start of another week. Hope you all have a good one and thanks for checking in and thanks for your Vegas well wishes.

Im glad you had a good time! You certainly deserve a break from all the stresses in your life.

My DH went several years ago and said all the food and drinks were really cheap as long as you were in a casino. Has that changed? Which show/s did you see? C'mon Ann, we need more details. SOme of us will never get a "break" like that !!

But after all, isnt home the best place? Hugs Deb

I'm glad you had a good time! I hope your nursing situation works out. We are having quite a time of it now, too. I think you are due to catch a break! I'm glad Jack was happy to see his mommy--what a sweetie!

Glad you had fun Ann, it does you good to get away for a few days. Glad Jack was pleased to have his mommy home. What a silly nurse - fancy not wanting to spend time with Jack - he's adorable, we all wanna smooch him!! I hope you get the nursing situation resolved quickly. Kristi must be a superstar!

Love juliexx
